I'm going to write this review little different. Just list the pros and cons, instead of paragraphs.
1. Location - one block away from 5th Ave & close to the beach.
2. Atmosphere - its got this very serene / tranquil feel to it.
3. Quiet pool - as there are no kids allowed, the pool area is quiet. Its smaller compared to some of the other big hotels. Its got really nice lounging beds.
4. Breakfast - The breakfast included as part of the room was amazing!! You have tons of options to choose from. You can get a hot beverage & a juice. I custom ordered and they totally accomodated on mutiple days (Kudos to Santiago, Omar & all other friendly wait staff).
5. Customer Service - The hotel staff were really helpful and friendly (Kudos to Carlos).
6. Beach clubs - They can hook you up with discount at Mamitas & Zensi (we didn't use them).
1. Next to Coco Bongo - if you are *very* light sleeper, then you might be better off in a different place (but everyplace near 5th ave will be slightly noisy). Didn't bother us, as we out past 2pm most nights.
2. Smaller pool - pool is slightly smaller compared to some of the bigger hotels (not too uncommon in PDC though, unlike the other mega resorts on Riviera Maya).
